Review: Best Behavior – Things That Happened

Best Behavior are releasing Things That Happened on November 14th. The EP boasts four songs and when the title track kicks into gear, it took me by surprise. It reminded me of Hot Hot Heat circa Elevator. They have the same sort of pop sound and catchiness with their lyrics. “As I Wait” is about a relationship that feels like it met a one-sided ending. He even takes responsibility by singing “I know I’m the one to blame.” The underlying music provides a great beat for the song and the band continues to impress.

While “As I Wait” was somewhat about communication (or lack thereof), “Say” is certainly about it. “I don’t know what to say” frequently comes up and it’s something everyone can we relate to. Haven’t we all had those moments where we just have absolutely no clue what to say? “Catherine No Chaser” closes out the EP. It’s a fun, summer-like song and even though it’s being released in the fall, it still works. The song fits with the overall tone of the EP. The music isn’t drastically different, even though the lyrical content might be a little more on the bright side than the other three songs.

Overall, Best Behavior put together a fun EP. The production on it is solid from start to finish. It won’t take up too much of your time to check this out since it’s only four songs. Best Behavior are certainly a band to keep an eye on as they continue working on new music. If you’re interested, you can grab a copy of Things The Happened on their Bandcamp. I highly suggest you do so.
